Born in Kirkland Lake in Northern Ontario, moved to Calgary where, after a long career
in the newspaper business, culminating as Composing Room Manager of the Calgary
Herald, decided to pursue a lifetime desire to become a professional artist.
A long-time member of the Calgary Sketch Club, past member of The Federation of
Canadian Artists, and The Group, enjoyed a long association with many of Calgary’s
artists and have been involved in workshops and seminars with many of Canada’s finest
With a representational yet impressionistic style, I paint in watercolour, ink and wash
and now mostly in Acrylic. The rich colours of northern Ontario often influence my work.
My travels in Canada, Nova Scotia and the southwestern United States have forever
influenced my work.
For several years I displayed my art at Gainsborough Galleries and had many shows
with fine Canadian artists including Robert Wood.
Most of my current works are shown with The Calgary Sketch Club and now at my own
web site (carlpeddie.com).
